92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - October 2009

($47) Bright medium red. Intense red rose, red cherry, dried redcurrant and rock candy aromas soar from the glass. Enters the mouth suave and sweet, showing a seamless quality to the ripe red cherry and raspberry flavors complicated by woodsy elements of truffle, moss and mushrooms. Finishes creamy, long and sweet, with firmer acidity than the '07. This brilliant example of sangiovese clearly demonstrates that this grape does not need to be helped along by any other variety when grown in the right site. Many in Italy feel that owner Piero Palmucci's is the best Rosso of them all, a view I am inclined to agree with. Unlike his Brunellos, which tend to be a little reduced at first, his Rossos don't require hours of decanting. (Robert Chadderdon Selections, New York, NY; Classic Wine Imports, West Roxbury, MA)
